Johannesburg - One person has died and another 12 injured in a vehicle accident on the R30 between Klerksdorp and Ventersdorp on Saturday, paramedics said.

"When Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the accident they found the bakkie lying in the veldt totally engulfed in flames. Fortunately all the passengers were ejected from the tumbling vehicle before it burst into flames," said spokesman Chris Botha.

One of the people died on impact, three children under the age of six were in a critical condition, another six people had serious injuries and three people escaped with only minor injuries.

The injured were taken to Tshepong for further treatment.
